ENTP 1w9 (The Complete Guide)

ENTP 1w9

ENTPs rock, and you know it. When compared with the Enneagram of Personality, few identify as an ENTP 1w9. Yet, they exist, and for that reason, we’re going to talk about them.

This article discusses the ENTP 1w9 and what you can expect from them.

Who is the ENTP 1w9?

ENTP 1w9s are perfectionists with the ability to take a breather. In other words, they have high standards but often do not go overboard with anything. For example, while ENTP 1w9s will be reliable, they won’t be workaholics. Work-life balance will matter a lot to them.

The ability to maintain a delicate balance is probably down to their wing. Type 9 wants to remain at peace. To achieve this, ENTP 1w9s often reach a subconscious pact with their wing; they do their best when needed and ensure nothing destroys their inner harmony.

Type 1 is as rare as it gets for an ENTP 1w9. Thus, as we shall soon see, pretty much every typical ENTP trait is modified.

ENTP 1w9 is more likely to be assertive than turbulent.

What is the Core Desire of the ENTP 1w9?

The core desire of the ENTP 1w9 is to be perfect or to be seen as perfect. To achieve this, they try to maintain a higher standard. Because they are ENTPs, they use their creative superpowers to make this happen.

What is the Core Fear of the ENTP 1w9?

The core fear of the ENTP 1w9 is being seen as imperfect. Unlike other type 1s, who are scared of corruption or being seen as evil, ENTP 1w9s care more about perfection (whatever that means to them).

How the 1w9 Changes  the Natural Tendencies of the ENTP

1.   More Disciplined

ENTPs are not the most disciplined type. ENTP 1w9 defies this stereotype. They are as perfect as it gets when in character. When in growth, they look more like type 7.

In other words, ENTP 1w9s are literally the only type who can be perfect, be crazy like type 7s, and maintain their discipline.

However, if their wing is strong, their discipline levels will suffer a bit.

2.   Stronger Values, But No Moral Activist

ENTPs are non-conventional. Thus, they find it hard to conform to norms. Things are significantly different with ENTP 1w9s. They have strong values and might respect laws better.

Regardless, ENTP 1w9s are no moral activists. They can disregard the law when they deem it necessary with no regrets. While this is true, disregarding the laws must be for the greater good and not their selfish interests.

3.   Less Diplomatic

ENTPs can be diplomatic when they want to be. This is especially obvious when they have a well-developed extroverted feeling function.

With ENTP 1w9, things are a bit rigid. They are less likely to budge on their core values, except the logic is faultless. It also means there’s less advocating for the fun of it.

Things are just more intense.

4.   More Evenly Spread Out Energy Levels

ENTPs are notorious for their random bursts of energy. Not this ENTP. ENTP 1w9s have a more balanced energy distribution. This has its perks.

First, it allows them to be more balanced and disciplined. They are also generally more organized as they have more energy to complete routine tasks.

5.   Perfect Balance

This follows the last point. The balance that is often missing from typical ENTP’s lives is very much present in ENTP 1w9.

Everything is done in moderation. It’s very difficult for an ENTP 1w9 to be an extremist or be excessive. The combination of 1w9 and ENTP provides them with a perfect balance.

6.   More Committed

Typical ENTPs are often more afraid of long-term commitments because they don’t want to feel trapped. ENTP 1w9s are different. They are more eager to take on commitments that matter to them.

While this is true, a strong wing might reduce this quality out of a need to prevent disruption of their peace.

New Weaknesses of the  ENTP 1w9

1.   Anger Issues

Types 1 and 9 are in the anger triad. However, their approaches to anger are different. While type 9 internalizes anger, type 9 suppresses it.

Thus, ENTP 1w9 will blame themselves for their mistakes. They might also take it out on their loved ones or subordinates. If their wing is strong, they will suppress their anger when dealing with those they respect.

For example, ENTP 1w9 might tolerate imperfections for a period with people they admire.

2.   More Judgemental

As you probably know, ENTPs are possibly one of the most liberal personalities around. This changes with the ENTP 1w9.

They become more conservative and even judgmental. Thus, ENTP 1w9 will do less advocating for causes they don’t believe in. They might also want people to follow their views on matters.

While all this is true, ENTP 1w9 will keep their criticisms to themselves in most situations.

3.   Eternal Struggle Despite Balance

As we have discussed throughout this article, ENTP 1w9s will have a lot of balance. However, the balance is just surface-level. There’s a continuous struggle internally that produces the end results.

This means that ENTP 1w9s are under consistent pressure to make sure everything works out perfectly.

That can take a toll on their physical and mental health.

4.   A Walking Contradiction

This follows the last point. An ENTP 1w9 is a walking contradiction. There are just so many traits that conflict. It’s a rewarding but tough life to live, perhaps one of the reasons why they are quite rare.

I have never met an ENTP 1w9 before, but I think I’ll find meeting them fascinating.

ENTP 1w9 in Love/Compatibility

Are you dating or married to an ENTP 1w9? Here are some things worth knowing.

1.   Love Languages

This refers to the way people prefer to give and receive love. ENTP 1w9s are more likely to have words of affirmation and quality time among their top three love languages.

This means that an ENTP 1w9 will need a lot of reassurance in a relationship. So, try not to tear them down. Instead, spend quality time with them (whatever quality time means to them).

2.   Compatibility

ENTP’s natural partners in the MBTI are the INFJ and INTJ. In Socionics, it’s the ISFJ. Type 1 is compatible with types 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 9.

Thus, ENTP 1w9 has a lot of options on the table. Nevertheless, any two mature persons can make a relationship work.

3.   The Art of Communication

With ENTP 1w9, it’s important to communicate exactly how you feel. This is especially important if you have doubts or questions about their core values.

ENTP 1w9s are also more adaptable than most type 1s. So, good communication improves the chances of growing your relationship.

4.   Don’t Doubt Their Loyalty

ENTP 1w9s are as loyal as they get. The addition of type 1 further solidifies their commitment. So, try not to doubt them. This does not mean you shouldn’t seek clarification.

It just means you should trust them more.

ENTP 1w9 in the Workplace

ENTPs love careers or jobs that challenge them. They want their jobs to be creative and allow them to think outside the box.

ENTP 1w9s are similar. They also want to pursue a career that positively impacts the world. They genuinely want to do well in their careers. ENTP 1w9s will do pretty well in all work environments.

Ensure their role is challenging to get the best out of the ENTP 1w9.
